Track needed for future BMX stars
HOW brilliant have been the last few months of Olympics-related events in our city; from the torch relay some months ago to the homecoming parade.
The motto of the games was "Inspire a Generation" and my seven-year-old daughter truly has been. After watching the high-adrenaline BMX racing along with David Beckham and his sons and Prime Minister David Cameron (my daughter and I watched it together on TV, while they were there at the live event), my daughter announced that she'd like to "do that".
So I looked to find the nearest BMX race track and/or club – only to find that while clubs and tracks exist in Exeter, Newton Abbot and Truro there is no such club or track in Plymouth. Which got me thinking – what other Olympic sporting events are there for which our city has absolutely zero facilities for those who have been inspired?
I appreciate that facilities like BMX race tracks don't come for free, yet I also see the spoil mound generated during the building of the Life Centre being removed and wonder if, with a little forethought, the spoil could have been turned into the jumps and berms of a BMX track so that the city might produce a future Olympic champion in this sport?
